What is a fake clairvoyant to do when she is stabbed, chewed on, dead, then returned? Turn into a real clairvoyant of course. Lucy (Leah Gibson) is scared shitless, and a lesson in be-careful-what-you-wish-for. Jack (Mark Pellegrino) is a bit freaked out himself. After passing out in the woods, Lena (Sophie Lowe) is found by Adam (Rhys Ward), who seems to be cured by her kindness. Camille (India Ennenga) tells Ben who she really is and he predictably runs away. Victor (Dylan Kingwell) messes with Peter’s (Jeremy Sisto) mind for revenge. As Peter begs forgiveness, he seems to see the gunman Henry/Victor saw that night put a gun to his head. And then it’s his own hand. Sisto did a great job with that scene. Without words, I knew that was exactly how Henry felt that night. And Peter did too.

With HBO’s Season 5 premiere of True Blood about to “come out of the coffin” on June 10th and now as an ongoing monthly comic series, it is a good time to be a Fangbanger. IDW is back again with True Blood #1 with a ‘Where Were You?’ story arc which lands on the one year anniversary of the Great Revelation aka Coffin Night. Creator Alan Ball teams up with writers Michael McMillian (who shows off another talent playing Reverend Steve Newlin on the show) and Ann Nocenti to bring us a new tale of the dark denizens of Bon Temps. Backstories are revealed from the day vampires informed humanity that not only do they exist, but with the invention of the synthetic blood substitute Tru Blood, the living and the dead can now peacefully coexist. Favorite characters from the show mingle with interesting and mysterious strangers on this strange new holiday which seeks to rival the decadence of Mardi Gras. This issue proves loyal to the world of the True Blood show but diverges from the storyline, making it a must see for Trubies and newbies alike.
